Flashlube Pty limited was formed in 1995 to take Wolfgang’s technology to the world. Early in the 21st Century Lead Replacement petrol was taken out of supply, creating a need for a Lead Replacement Additive for pre 1986 vehicles. Flashlube was sold at a rapid rate in its 50ml bottle and thus quickly grew to be the leading Lead Replacement solution.
German Scientist, Wolfgang Kluenner in 1979, developed Flashlube in Melbourne Australia. Wolfgang was a CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) Scientist and worked from Monash University. He recognised the problem of Valve Seat Recession in Gas converted vehicles and thus devoted his time to researching and inventing the solution. The answer was the Flashlube Valve Saver Kit and its specially formulated Flashlube Valve Saver Fluid.
Recently the fuel industry began to modify its Diesel Fuel and supply only Low Sulphur Diesel Fuel. Although environmentally beneficial, this new standard caused concern for the older Diesel vehicle industry and a solution was sought after. With thorough and lengthy research behind it, Flashlube Diesel Conditioner was introduced into the market. Its ability to lubricate (with a sulphur free formulation) like original diesel fuel, was well recognised by its 2005 Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association – Gold Award.
Flashlube’s use is growing rapidly into the motor vehicle, farming, industrial, transport and motorbike markets across the world. Flashlube is currently now available in Australia, Europe, North America, South America, South East Asia and India.
Wolfgang has been noted to be proud that his invention has not only been trusted, but also appreciated by the automotive market. As we step forward, Flashlube is committed to its development and research that grows this appreciation.
